Afghanistan Rejects Pakistan’s Demand for Handing over ISIS-K Leader

“Aslam Farooqi has committed lots of crimes and he is blamed for leading operations which resulted in the killing of many Afghan civilians and soldiers and he will be tried under Afghan laws,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The statement added that Afghanistan does not differentiate between terrorists and they will be brought to justice as the country is committed to anti-terrorism fight.
“As there is no extradition treaty between the two countries and that is why Aslam Farooqi will be tried under Afghan laws,” added the statement.
Pakistan on Thursday summoned Afghan Ambassador Atif Mashal to convey the country’s concerns and demanded handover of Farooqi.
Aslam Farooqi, a Pakistani national, was recently arrested in an intelligence operation along with 19 key members of the group by Afghan security forces.
